"The Tom Sawyer is insane. Excellent work with the synthesizer and Mike Travis can give Neil Peart a run for his money."

Travis is good, Peart is a GOD. Please learn something before you something really stupid.

Subject: Best SCI NYE
my favorite NYE show ever SCI has done. i absolutely love the Sweet Melinda > Jam > Texas !!! that alone is worth the download. i love when they bust out of Sweet Melinda and Texas was such a closer! the Jam into Texas is top notch!!!!

second set was raging also, opener Rivertrance > RTW w/ Karl was nice, the highlight of the setII for me was the insane TMBTP > Jam > Lands End > Jam > Drums > Jams > OTR !!!!! btwn this and the Sweet Melinda > Texas segue makes my head explode!! 5 stars

Subject: Great night!
This was my second SCI NYE show and I loved it! Graet choice of songs. At least this time they start on time! Anyone that was at the Oregon '00 NYE show knows what I'm talking about.

Subject: best show
This night was a night to remember!! Opening alwith the FIRST TIME cover of Magic Carpet Ride. Then a strong Come as You Are. Then by far the best Sweet Melinda. That in my view tops any I have ever heard then ending the 1st set with a great Texas. The rivertrance is OK but can't be called as good as any of the 99s or 00s. The tom Sawyer was something different I wished kyle would of altered the song more. Then This Must Be the Place with a sick sick jam that follows. Then came the best part the Land's End which is very very good my top pick for land's end. Then Keller comes up to end the night and finishs it up to my top show. I like this show better then any of the amazing shows thoughout 99,00,01.

Reviewer: s9 cheeses over yonder - - March 11, 2005
Subject: best ever
i don't think it has been mentioned here yet that this nye show is the best ever. i've been to five of the last six theyv'e played and this is not only the best nye show i have ever witnessed, but also in my top 3 shows i've seen period(100+ cheese as well as plenty of other bands). the caya is insane as is the whole first set. everything they played was solid. the jams in lands end and otr and tmbtp are amazing. the melinda>texas... this is not to mention the rivertrance with lazers and all. crazy craziness. if you don't have this show, it should be the first one you download. lovin it.
ps.- download the other version as it contains the energy of the crowd and is an excellent recording. you don't miss a beat and the crowd is awestriking. narachi is the master taper.

i think that the bam mouth fluegal was amazing personally. highlight is the rivertrance countdown then round the wheel

The Tom Sawyer is insane. Excellent work with the synthesizer and Mike Travis can give Neil Peart a run for his money.

Except for the Tom Sawyer, and áBAM! this show is BRILLIANT. The Magic Carpet Ride > Come As You Are, is a strong beginning to a Hot !! Hot !!! New Years Eve Incident. The Rivertrance > NYE Countdown is one the best version going . One of the glorious gifts from this performance is that this show has a shn > DAT soundboard copy on etree.org archives. SCI is one of most underrated band in the jam scene today. I hear a lot about Phish, but String Cheese is truly unpredictable and fun. This is a great show to introduce yourself to if you're unfamiliar with the tasty live tunes that comes from an Incident. DOWNLOAD THIS FOR 2003 !!!!!!!!!
